​Blended Families: Protecting your loved ones and the perils of not forward planning

As a society we are seeing a change in the family structure. Today, blended families are more common than ever. New beginnings and the blended families they create can be wonderful, however no matter what your family make-up, it's crucial to plan for the future.

On Tuesday 18th September, our family law and private client solicitors presented on the changing family landscape. During the briefing, Caroline Eaton (Family Law Solicitor) and Jennifer Morgan (Wills, Trusts and Probate Solicitor) discussed options to help you make the best decision for you and your family, how to protect yourself and your loved ones with forward planning and the importance of having the correct legal documents in place.

  • Inheritance – difference between married and unmarried couples
  • Estate Planning – what challenges do Blended Families face?
  • Updating your Will - protecting your own children and providing for your new spouse
